doTERRA Weight Loss Challenge

February will kick off the doTERRA Slim & Sassy Weight Loss Challenge.  To kick start my diet, I will use the Slim and Sassy line of products, along with some other strategically placed doTERRA products to reach my weight loss goals.  Here's what I am starting with:




SLIM & SASSY®
METABOLIC BLEND
dōTERRA’s Slim & Sassy is a proprietary formula of grapefruit, lemon, peppermint, ginger, and cinnamon essential oils. Just add 8 drops to 16 oz. of water and drink between your healthy meals throughout the day to help manage hunger, calm your stomach, and lift your mood. Slim & Sassy is 100% pure essential oils, does not contain diuretics or stimulants, and has zero calories.





SLIM & SASSY®
CHOCOLATE  OR VANILLA TRIM SHAKE
Slim & Sassy TrimShake is a convenient and delicious shake mix providing the essential nutrients of a healthy meal* with only 125 calories per serving. Used as a meal replacement for one or more meals each day, TrimShake can help you lose unwanted fat stores through calorie restriction and regular exercise. TrimShake also includes a patented weight-loss ingredient Essentra® Trim that has been demonstrated to help with managing the stress hormone cortisol associated with fat storage. TrimShake blends well with water or milk for a low-calorie, low-glycemic, high-fiber satisfying meal alternative† with 16 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per serving.


I'm replacing one meal a day with a Trim Shake and taking 8 drops of Slim & Sassy Essential Oil in a veggie cap with every meal.  I'm getting at least 30 minutes of cardio in at least 5 days a week.  I am also doing yoga twice a week.  To maintain a high energy level, I'll also be taking Mito2Max throughout the entire diet.

To get off to a running start, I'm doing a digestive cleanse for the first 7 day.  I'm taking GX Assist and sticking to a liquid vegetarian diet.  After the first 7 days, I'll reintroduce solid foods and continue to take the GX Assist for 3 more days. Then I will start taking PB Assist to restore good flora to my digestive system.


GX ASSIST
GI CLEANSING FORMULA
GX Assist is a combination of CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils of oregano, melaleuca, lemon, lemongrass, peppermint and thyme and caprylic acid that helps support a healthy digestive tract by creating an unfriendly environment for potentially harmful pathogens that can disrupt digestive immunities and cause digestive upset. GX Assist is formulated to be used for 10 days as a preparatory cleansing step before using PB Assist Probiotic Defense Formula.



PB ASSIST+
PROBIOTIC DEFENSE FORMULA
PB Assist+ is a proprietary formula of pre-biotic fiber and six strains of probiotic microorganisms in a unique double-layer vegetable capsule delivering 5 billion CFUs of active probiotic cultures and soluble pre-biotic FOS (fructo- oligosaccharides) that encourages culture adhesion and growth. The time-release double-capsule delivery system protects sensitive probiotic cultures from stomach acid. PB Assist+ supports healthy digestive functions and immunities and is safe for use by all members of your family.




MITO2MAXTM
ENERGY & STAMINA COMPLEX
dōTERRA’s Mito2Max is a proprietary formula of standardized plant extracts and metabolic cofactors of cellular energy. Mito2Max supports healthy mitochondrial function and aerobic capacity, and improves stamina naturally without the use of harmful stimulants. Use Mito2Max as a healthy long-term alternative to caffeinated drinks and supplements for increased energy and vitality.*
